Miami Beach, FL, June 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- After helping thousands of patients get their lives back through minimally invasive spinal surgery, the South Florida Spine Institute announces the opening of a new, comprehensive center for surgical and non-surgical spine care.
For more than 20 years, patients from South Florida and across the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America have traveled to the South Florida Spine Institute to gain relief from their debilitating back and neck pain. Now, the Institute is able to provide the most advanced minimally invasive spinal procedures, non-invasive pain management techniques, physical therapy and even pilates in a new 9,000 square foot facility in Miami Beach.
The South Florida Spine Institute offers two comfortable patient lounges, 12 examination rooms, two procedure rooms, a fully equipped physical and rehabilitation therapy center and a state-of-the-art pilates studio. Situated in the new, waterfront medical pavilion at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, the location offers stunning, unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay.
Partners Dan S. Cohen, M.D., and Jonathan Hyde, M.D., both orthopedic surgeons specializing in the spine, opened the multidisciplinary facility because of their belief that treatments must be tailored to the individual patient. “We’ve spent two decades learning the latest surgical innovations and even developing new tools and techniques to free our patients from pain and return them to their active lives,” explains Dr. Cohen. Non-invasive treatments have also advanced dramatically, Dr. Hyde notes, “In one location, we are now able to offer virtually every modality designed to restore patients’ physical function and quality of life, with or without surgery.”
The South Florida Spine Institute is revolutionizing the landscape of spine care with a unique team approach towards the treatment of disorders and injuries of the back and neck. The surgical team, Dr. Cohen, Dr. Hyde, and new specialist, Juan Raposo, M.D., offer the most advanced, small-incision interventions. Dr. David Berkower, trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation, has been joined by new colleague Dr. Seth Kaufman. Both specialize in non-operative, minimally invasive treatments and image-guided procedures for the rapid relief of pain and aggressive treatment of musculoskeletal disease and injuries.
Patients requiring physical rehabilitation enjoy the convenience of therapy sessions on-site in the state-of-the-art rehabilitation center. The integrated treatment plan for patients at the Institute may also call for core stability training in the adjacent pilates studio. Private pilates lessons also are available by appointment for individuals and groups.
Located in Miami Beach at 4308 Alton Road, Suite 830, the South Florida Spine Institute is widely recognized as one of the leading centers in the United States for spinal care and pain management. For added convenience, patients can visit the Institute’s Aventura office, located at 20601 E. Dixie Highway for surgical consultations and pain interventions.
